Whilst the RPG being remade is still up for questioning, the use of multiple engines is highlighted. Further down in the job listing it is noted that cutscene experience for both Unreal Engine 4 and Unity is needed, and that motion capture experience is required as well (for the 3D motion designer job).

There’s jobs on offer for a 3D motion designer, 3D background designer, 2D character designer and a 3D art director. The timeline for development of the PS5 remake is currently unknown, with the job listing deliberately leaving the reveal blank.
